Recipes We Love: Beet Winter Blues with Roots
Beets are a great source of natural sugars and vitamins, and I find myself with an abundance in my fridge mid-winter. So, recently I boiled a giant batch and have them at the ready for a salad, or snack. Turmeric is also a wonderful spice with health and taste benefits. This recipe turns cooked beets into a delicious simple dip great to go with veggie sticks, crackers and cheese, or as a base for a salad dressing.
3-4 medium sized beets
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tsp powdered turmeric
½ tsp salt *
*smoked salt takes this recipe to a whole other level.
1. Boil beets until soft
2. Let beets cool *
3. Coarsely chop into rough chunks and place in a food processor and puree.
4. Add yogurt, turmeric, and salt and blend.
*remove skins or keep, as you prefer.
